If Love Was a Plant

If love was a plant,
Would you let it wither?
Would you nurture it each day?
Would you let it bloom?
Or would you let it die?

Alone and forgotten,
Do not leave our love,
What took a lifetime to build,
Slowly decays and fades away.

At the leafs in the fall,
Everything inside dies
The iridescent coloring of fall
Is so beautiful yet so sad.

And in this pain I dwell.
Would we withstand
Or shall we fall apart?

Have my prayers reached the skies
Or are yours the same as mine?

Bombarded by my thoughts,
I stand.
Left alone in despair,
My love mourns.

You seem to care, at times,
At times you forget.
How to I heal my broken heart?
Shattered and splashed.

A disarray of thoughts,
Cloud my sight,
And all I see is me,
Picking up the pieces you left.

Will our love wither or withstand?
You tell me, my love.

The Intricate Universe

android-wallpaper-astronomy-dolomites-1624496

Connected among the stars,
Lies the connection,
Of our puzzled universe.

Some watch from afar,
Others dream of being there,
While others rest above the clouds.

How many centuries have there been?
How many stars can I see?

Through trial and error,
We gaze from afar,
Wondering how
It all came to be?

Far, far above
Farther than the clouds,
Farther than the sun,
We discovered there is more.

Everything then
Seems in disarray…
But what do we know?

Where do our paths cross?
Where do our souls meet?
When we gaze above,
Where do we stand?

Are we all connected?
Is it all relative?
Where do we intertwine?

In this beautiful intricate universe,
Where we all collide,
I hope to find love,
Closer than the stars.

For those who wonder,
For those who gaze,
I hope you find,
Everything that is so vast,
So far…
Yet so simple, so close.

That is,
My perception of the universe.

 

When The Lights Fade Out

When the lights fade out
And the streets are cold,
Where will I go?

When everything is dark,
When there is no one there,
And the city is still.

When the flashing lights don’t shine
And the music stops
Where are my city lights?

How long will this last,
When everyone fades away
And there are no lights to shine?

Among the city
I look for the night sky,
Shining stars,
Starry night.

Flash a light in my soul,
Give me lucidness,
Inspire my soul.

Help me write,
On the night sky,
Where the lights guide me,
Among the city lights.

 

Limitations

How far away may I go,
When I’ve run around in circles?

How far away may I go,
After looking in the mirror
And finding what I had missed?

How far away can my mind go
When I’ve put limits on my own thoughts?

How far then, will I go
Once I am free from these thoughts?

But which thoughts are mine?
And which ones come from outer space?

How can my being have contrasting views,
If it is just me?

Beyond the limitations,
I’ve set my standards,
Farther away they go.

Have I dreamt too much or
Have I lacked vision?

Where do limitations come
And why won’t they leave?

It is not I against you,
It is I against I
In a puzzle game.

Where do I go from now?
Are the voices inside myself
Greater than I?

Show me the way, God
For I have failed.
But I know far beyond,
I shall sail.

Farther than these limitations.

 

Tainted Love

Tainted love,
I write to you from despair,
I write to you ,
Hoping these verses will make you clear.

I hope that if you listen,
You never faint,
And if you may still breathe,
I ask you to smell.

Oh tainted love!
So forgotten,
So far, yet so close.
The light is dim,
I hope your light never fades.

Tainted love,
Tell me how you are still alive,
After all we been through?

No matter where I be,
My love never fades,
Even if it seems so.

Tell me,
How many starry nights have you watched?
How many times,
In oblivion have you plunged?
How many times?

I hope you never fade,
Like these verses,
In my wake.

Amor Cobarde

agZojrusQNKTLLIeHlGpag

¿Qué es un amor cobarde?
No es nada,
Más que un pensamiento.

Una ciénaga
Cubierta de un paraíso imaginario.

Una obra,
No terminada.

Un amor cobarde,
No es un amor
Porque nunca lo fue.

Fue solo un pensamiento.

Si fueras palpable,
Te llevaría a mi patria.
A la tierra del quetzal.

En la tierra donde las flores,
Florecen todos los días.
Donde el azul de los lagos,
Penetra hasta el alma.
En donde hay tantos colores.

Un amor cobarde,
Es solo un deseo,
Nada más.

Solo son las ganas de besarte,
De estar con vos,
De hacerte reír,
Pero no llamarte mía.

En resumen,
Un amor cobarde,
No es ni mierda.

Guatemala es un Sueño

¿Como podría olvidarme yo de mi tierra?
Un sueño tan real
Cubierta de lagos y volcanes
Sus colores y flores.

Entre las estrellas de Panajachel,
Navegan mis sueños.
En las olas de Monterrico,
Se me fueron las penas
Y las noches bohemias
Me esperan en Antigua.

Sos un sueño
Tus calles parecen fantasía
Y tus historias de otro mundo.

Sos un regalo,
Mi primer amor
Y toda mi infancia.

Gracias
Por tantos cuentos e historias,
Por tanta imaginación.
